Q: Hi and thank you for your welcome as a new home exchange member. I only have one question regarding the possible types of exchange. How does a non simultaneous home swap work? - Lucila, Barcelona (in photo).
A: When members are able to offer their homes at different times (often when swapping second homes), they can arrange to have their holidays at different times, rather than the usual direct swap between members at the same time. So, for example, if you wanted to swap for two weeks in July (and your exchange partners home was available then) but your exchange partner’s preferred dates were two weeks in September (and you were able to offer your home to them at that time), you would have your holiday in July while they would have their part of the exchange two months later in September.
